    Default OUTER JOINS from MS SQL Server 2005


    Is it possible to define outer join relationship for SQL Server 2005? This SQL Server version allows only ANSI SQL92 syntax, which is LEFT OUTER JOIN, RIGHT OUTER JOIN etc..., so I'm not able to use Complex Join option.
    Complex Join works fine for ORACLE (+) outer syntax, but what can be done for MS SQL Server???

    I don't want to decrease compatibility level for the database.

    Thanks in advance for any help..

    No outer joins are possible at this stage and I would like to take the opportunity to express my hopes that this will stay like that.

    For the time being, consider wrapping your outer join in a view.
